Atlantic Arts Trio to perform at Mount A, Sept. 23

SACKVILLE, NB ó On Friday, September 23, at 8 p.m., in Brunton Auditorium, Mount Allisonís department of music will feature a performance by the Atlantic Arts Trio, a dynamic ensemble that has toured in Canada, the United States, England, and Asia. The members of the Trio are Carolyn Hart (soprano), Dileep Gangolli (clarinet), and Mount Allison professor, Edmund Dawe.

The concert will feature Franz Schubertís classic Shepherd on the Rock, Gerald Finziís Five Bagatelles for Clarinet and Piano, and Dissidence for soprano and piano by Canadian composer, Pierre Mercure. In the first half of the program the Trio will perform Dominick Argentoís To Be Sung Upon The Water, a highly evocative contemporary setting of eight poems by William Wordsworth.

Carolyn Hart is chair of the voice division at Wheaton College in Illinois. She performs frequently with leading Chicago-based organizations such as Music of the Baroque. Noted for her versatility in a wide ranging repertoire, Carolynís concerts have been met with critical praise and she performs regularly in North America and Europe. Dileep Gangolli frequently appears with major American orchestras including the Chicago Symphony, the Milwaukee Symphony, and the Ars Viva Orchestra. He is the founder and Director of the Sheridan Chamber Players and is also active with the Fulcrum Point New Music project in Chicago. His performances are heralded for his technical mastery and tonal warmth. Edmund Dawe is a professor of piano at Mount Allison University, and served as department head from 1997-2003. He has performed in North America, Europe, and Asia as a soloist and collaborative pianist. In his concerts and recordings, his technical mastery of the keyboard and artistic insights have earned the praise of critics and, in 2004, a nomination for an East Coast Music Award (Best Classical).

The Atlantic Arts Trio has received touring and commissioning grants from the Canada Council, the Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade, the Ontario Arts Council, the New Brunswick Arts Branch, and the Newfoundland and Labrador Arts Council. The ensemble performs frequently in Canada and abroad. With dozens of performances and broadcasts to it credit, the Atlantic Arts Trio has been recognized for its versatility and polish in a highly eclectic repertoire. In November, the Trio will be featured in a concert tour of Southern Florida, and next spring, will collaborate with members of the Chicago Symphony in an evening of music by Schubert.

There is no admission charge for the concert on September 23, to which the public is cordially invited.
